president obama would have preferred to cancel his interview today. in any presidency there are days of hope and promise. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> and days of triumph. >> the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda. >> and then there are days like today. headlines about out of control spying. >> the white house under fire right now given all of these revelations. >> and now sources confirm it was happening apparently without the president's knowledge. and then there is obama care, the website in disarray and the other legacy program, immigration reform, now stalled in partisan politics. this was probably not the day president obama would have chosen to speak one-on-one with abc's new partner, fusion. >> good to see ya. >> good to see you, mr. president. >> congratulations on the new venture. >> but speak he did, taking questions on this difficult day.
